 On Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at approximately 9:50 p.m., the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department was notified of a stolen vehicle out of Lacrosse, WI. The stolen vehicle was located by a Crawford County Deputy at a residence off of State Highway 35, in the Township of Freeman.

A 2005 Chevy Cobalt owned by Mark D. Olson, age 39, of La Crosse WI, was taken from his residence. Michelle L. Peck, age 35, of La Crosse WI was found to be in possession of the stolen car.

During the investigation multiple items of drug paraphernalia were found throughout the car. Over approximately 50 used hypodermic needles were found in the car. Needles were found throughout the front of the car as well as a sharps container in the rear of the car which was over half full of used needles. Tests showed a positive result for Methamphetamine.

Multiple items commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine were found in the vehicle as well. These items were found together in a bag next to the needles. Property belonging to both Peck and Olson was within the car, and both had a history of sharing the car previously.

Peck was arrested and charged with Possessing Materials for Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Possession of Methamphetamine. Peck also received a citation for Operating after Suspension and Possession of Marijuana. Peck faces subsequent charges in La Crosse for Operating a Motor Vehicle without the owner’s consent.
